I took my pc to a friend a few weeks ago to clean it and he wanted to test a cpu on my PC so I let him, after that he said that I have to change the thermal compound and he chenaged it but after that I noticed that the cpu is overheating when i play ( i play only cs 1.6 and warcraft frozen throne) and reaches 100 celsius degrees (I saw this temperature in speccy) and often the pc is shuting down. Two weeks ago I decided to change the thermal compound and I bought Arctic Silver 5 but there is no big difference and i have to mention that now the pc is properly ventilated and the problem still persists, if the problem it's not from the thermal compound or the ventilation what could be?
My processor is an AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+
